So as the title would suggest, I'm desperate here and need to convince one of my boys that top bunk is awesome!!!
We went from 2 single beds in their room to having a tri bunk and I love it
It's awesome having more room in the room and also having that double bed for visitors etc.
Charlie loved the idea and was excited about top bunk (he's 6 now, 5 when we got them), but the reality of it was far different... He was too scared to sleep up there... He whinged about nightmares and all sorts of BS. The bed rail I use is one of the ones you use for toddlers when they move to a big bed, I've had him lie against it, roll into it etc etc to show that he cannot fall out. But he still doesn't like it
Oh and I've put up a curtain to make it like a fort too. He sleeps there from time to time, but not consistently. They tend to sleep on the bottom bunk together!
Now I don't mind them sharing the bottom bunk, but they carry on and take ages to get to sleep and play and annoy each other etc..
Yesterday Charlie and I discussed it and he definately doesn't want top bunk, so then I tried to convince Ollie (4) just how awesome it is... He slept there last night but this morning he's back to whingeing about 'why can't we have the old beds back'...
So today, somehow I have to make it super awesome to convince Ollie that it's the best bed ever and he really needs to sleep up there haha.
Please please please help me, no matter how little or silly it sounds, I want to hear it
The only thing I can think of to do is get him to choose some photos to print off and put up some photos on the wall up there.
Thanks in advance
